9780743270144: You Grow Girl

This is not your grandmother's gardening book. You Grow Girl is a hip, humorous how-to for crafty gals everywhere who are discovering a passion for gardening but lack the know-how to turn their dreams of homegrown tomatoes and fresh-cut flowers into a reality.
Gayla Trail, creator of YouGrowGirl.com, provides guidance for both beginning and intermediate gardeners with engaging tips, projects, and recipes -- whether you have access to a small backyard or merely to a fire escape. You Grow Girl eliminates the intimidation factor and reveals how easy and enjoyable it can be to cultivate plants and flowers even when resources and space are limited. Divided into accessible sections like Plan, Plant, and Grow, You Grow Girl takes readers through the entire gardening experience:

  • Preparing soil
  • Nurturing seedlings
  • Fending off critters


  • Reaping the bounty
  • Readying plants for winter
  • Preparing for the seasons ahead


Gayla also includes a wealth of ingenious and creative projects, such as:
  • Transforming your garden's harvest into lush bath and beauty products
  • Converting household junk into canny containers
  • Growing and bagging herbal tea
  • Concocting homemade pest repellents

...and much, much more.
Witty, wise, and as practical as it is stylish, You Grow Girl is guaranteed to show you how to get your garden on. All you need is a windowsill and a dream!

About the Author:

Gayla Trail created her acclaimed gardening website,YouGrowGirl.com, in 2000. A graphic designer, writer, photographer, and gardener, she has contributed to BUST and ReadyMade magazines as a gardening guru. She lives in Toronto.

From Publishers Weekly:

While this book's subtitle may be an overstatement-despite the quirky illustrations and chatty style, there isn't much "groundbreaking" advice here-the book itself is a competent guide to getting a little dirt under your fingernails. Trail, a graphic designer, writer, gardener and creator of www.YouGrowGirl.com, believes gardening, like knitting and crocheting, has become cool again. Her advice to young women who want to take up the hobby is "follow your heart." Gardening doesn't have to be intimidating, she says, and her book certainly proves that. In instructional subdivisions such as "Mulch, Love It or Leave It" and "Not Your Grandmother's Gardening Apron," she coaches readers on basic aspects of gardening, keeping her tone light and her advice simple. Chapters detail planting, growing, collecting bounty (like herbs, fruits and vegetables) and preparing a garden for winter. Each project-from assembling devices to keep pests away to instructions for growing potted tomatoes-is marked to show its difficulty level, and Trail is equally attuned to the needs of both city dwellers and those with more space to develop their green thumb. 100 color photos.
